House Floor Fight

The House of Representatives is expected to start dealing with controversial plans to either discipline or expel some of the most controversial members of Congress …Read more

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. — Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced a resolution to censure Tlaib last week for her antisemitic statements and for supporting what Greene called an “insurrection” — a protest and demonstration at Capitol Hill office buildings.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga. — After the censure against Tlaib, Democratic Rep. Becca Balint brought her censure resolution against Greene, which calls Greene out for “[fanning] the flames of racism, antisemitism, LGBTQ hate speech, Islamophobia, anti-Asian hate, xenophobia, and other forms of hatred.

Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y. — Santos has faced calls to resign from his own Republican colleagues from New York, and now many want him expelled from the chamber. He faces several federal criminal charges and a House Ethics investigation for his lies on the campaign trail about his resume. Expulsion of a House lawmaker requires two thirds of the majority.

The House could vote to “table” each resolution. If a motion to table fail in the vote, the House will begin debate on each resolution itself.
